Wes Jackson, farmer, geneticist, and director of the Land Institute at Salina (Saline County), Kansas, presents an outline of a project at Matfield Green (Chase County) to his student interns. The outline lists information on the history, expansion, programs, staff, publicity, and future of the project. Jackson's involvement in Matfield Green was motivated by his interest in creating a sustainable development model for small, rural communities. The project generated some controversy with local residents. Jackson's work reflects a broader movement in the late twentieth century to develop agricultural and community systems more in line with ecological principles.
